I have exactly the same setup as you do. Most up-to-date workstations are 8.5 Patch 5. It looks like they're never going to fix the issue where you need to apply a hotfix before another patch, so I'm keeping it the way it is. I will wait at least one month after 8.7 Patch 1 comes out before I start testing it.
